…It’s Things Thursday: DODOcase?


The limited edition DODOcase is a beautiful, hand made iPad case that is designed to protect it from extinction.

Inspired by Moleskine journals and made by hand in San Francisco using traditional book binding techniques, the case blends the traditional feel of a book with the technological power of the iPad. With an interior made from bamboo and a faux leather cover, it’s also environmentally friendly, so you can rest easy if that’s a check box in your buying decision.

Lastly, the cover is designed to be folded back so you can stand your iPad, and an elastic strap keeps the cover tight when you’re on the go.

If the Apple case isn’t doing it for you, and you want to make sure your iPad stands out from the crowd, then definitely give the DODOcase a look, because there’s really just nothing like it that’s alive today.

…It’s Website Wednesday: The Uniform Project?

Uniform Project

The Uniform Project is a campaign to raise money for the Akanksha Foundation (a grassroots movement that is revolutionizing education in India) in which Sheena Matheiken will wear one dress for one year as an exercise in sustainable fashion.

Though she’s wearing one dress, there are seven identical copies of it so that she can have a clean one each day of the week, and each day, Sheena will reinvent the dress with layers, accessories and all kinds of accouterments, the majority of which will be vintage, hand-made, or hand-me-down goodies.
